Most of my reviews are contentless or mere reactions to other reviews, or ill-informed comments. However, today I posted a review for an episode of "To Tell the Truth" that was kinda cool. It's almost as good as that review I did of a UNIVAC commercial that someone compared to having been written under the influence of Cherry Coke.

Most of mine are based on nostalgic memories and written under the influence of Diet Dr. Pepper. So? All reviews are subjective in nature, and none has more value than another.

None of us are professional reviewers here, just fans and collectors (many of us middle-aged or older), and as such our "reviews" are largely reactions to the content based on personal, very subjective memories of seeing these shows and movies earlier in life. In my case, most of my "reviews" spring from the 1960s, drive-ins, and chiller late shows.

Other than the occasional quibbles over picture or sound quality or bandwidth issues, or cast and credits lists, that's all these "reviews" really are. I think that's just about perfect, and worth more on a human level than some dry, pseudo-academic essay.
